Pictures of these two black bears from Lincoln County quickly captured the attention of our Zooniverse community. That’s why we deemed a photo of this pair our December #SuperSnap. Black bear cubs are born during January and February each year. The cubs remain with their mother for about 18 months. During this time, mother bears will teach their cubs how to climb trees, find shelter, and forage for food before sending them off into the world on their own.
A huge thanks to Zooniverse participant @momsabina for the #SuperSnap nomination!
